amiibo is certainly turning out to be a big thing in Nintendo's eyes. Whether or not the rewards for utilizing each amiibo is worthy to you, Nintendo plans to implement all sorts of bonuses. It appears right now that every amiibo is meant to do 'something' in each game though games not featuring certain characters may have more limited uses or lesser-valued ones. We've had plenty of threads on here for amiibo and I'm sure that will continue. Still, I wanted to establish a general discussion thread that doesn't have a specific focus or thought. We'll also use this thread for informing the forums about upcoming news regarding new waves of amiibo or new compatibility. Enjoy! Tell us which amiibo you're planning to get! To get the party started, here are the various waves of amiibo on their way, compatibility information from Nintendo's website, and various links to other threads regarding amiibo.
Super Smash Bros for Wii U, Mario Kart 8, Hyrule Warriors, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Mario Party 10, Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, Yoshi's Woolly World, Splatoon, CodeName: S.T.E.A.M., ACE COMBAT ASSAULT HORIZON LEGACY, Xenoblade Chronicles 3D, and more…
I canceled Pit and Sonic because I need to slow down. Once I get Rosalina on pre-order (hoping that goes live today), I'll have five on pre-order (her, Mega Man, Ike, Sheik, and Luigi...since Amazon "can't find him").
Mom got me a Diddy for Christmas, apparently, and picked up a Zelda in case my reserve at GameStop goes *poof* for whatever reason. They still haven't called me, hmmm... In any event, because I bought the Little Mac early, that ensures that all over the 2A figures are "mine" now. Was anyone looking for a Little Mac (or Zelda)?
It's LIVE! It's LIVE! Rosalina pre-orders at target.com are LIVE!
Edit: Well... they were.... now the button wont work for me. I thought it was limiting me to 1 per person but I was going to get another to help someone here and the website now states "Sorry, this item is not currently available."
If they're truly sold out already, then what the fuck. Based on twitter, these were open for 30 minutes. Something ain't right.
Edit: Now the button is sold out again. I... presume... mine is a legit pre-order? I don't know what the hell happened here. It was earlier than 6am here in the EST time zone for God's sake.
I'm not real happy about how Target has handled this for the last two nights now (was about 3 minutes Tuesday morning and 30 this morning) so I've got to think they glitched. She's one of the few I've been clamoring for since day one.
CPA_Wei and deathly_hallows are the only ones in NYC area as far as I know (maybe Tranquilo too?) and even then it's not exactly convenient to get to midtown Manhattan all the time. But maybe if they're in the area.
